Suzanne the Beachrat
I live by the sea and write about life.
When I was 27, I moved to Ohio, got married, and had one son and one daughter. Today, they’re in their twenties. Being a mother to them was the best thing I ever did in my life. Now I have a darling one-year-old grandson to love as an extra bonus.
I moved from Ohio to the mountains of North Carolina in 2005, then came to Topsail Island in 2009. My favorite activities are visiting my family and making beach observations.
My claim to fame is my ability to stay here in spite of the expense of doing so. It’s a hard life out here on this sandspit for people who are financially challenged. But this is the only place I’ve ever been happy to call home when the trips are over. It’s one of the best little towns in the country, and I feel lucky to be here.
